About Cleo

Most people come to Cleo to do work that matters. Every day, we fight for the world’s financial health, building a beloved AI that empowers people to make better financial decisions.

Backed by some of the most well-known investors in tech, we’ve reached over 4 million users and plan to double that number each year...which is where you come in.

We’re looking for a brilliant Frontend React/React Native Engineer with an eye for UI/UX design to join us on our mission to fight for the world's financial health. You’ll be joining a team of adaptable, creative and product-focused engineers who ship working software. We understand our customers, we understand their pain, and we are passionate about helping them.

What you’ll be doing

  • Joining a cross-functional product squad with a mix of frontend engineers, designers, UX writers, backend engineers, data analysts and others to develop features that improve our users’ financial health

  • Working on our React Native application, building out amazing experiences for our users which bring financial health to life in the unique Cleo tone of voice.

  • Writing automated tests alongside your code to give us the confidence to ship it

  • Using AB-Tests, feature flags and other tools that let us iterate quickly

  • Using data to dig into user journeys, detecting problems and helping to optimise the Cleo experience

  • Being part of the rota for our weekly app releases to the Apple and Google app stores

  • Getting involved in cross-cutting concerns that lift our entire engineering effort with the rest of the frontend chapter

  • Taking part in shaping all the work your squad does, not just the technical parts. Delivery is a team sport, and we encourage everyone at Cleo to share their ideas, so you can expect to be involved in product ideation sessions, user research calls, design reviews, retrospectives, ways of working sessions, product demos, OKR reviews.

Here are some examples, big and small, of the kinds of product feature work our engineers have taken part in over the last year:

  • Building a secured credit card from scratch to help our users improve their credit scores without changing their habits.

  • Launching our new budget rewind feature to help users understand their pay-cycle and provide them with better analysis of how they got on with their budget.

  • Adding discount plans and tiering options to our subscriptions so we can experiment with the best pricing for different types of users.

Whichever squad and part of the business you land in, you will be shipping changes multiple times a week to our hundreds of thousands of active users and seeing your work having a material impact on the financial health of those most in need.

About you

Firstly and most importantly, all of the above sounds exciting to you and you want to make a positive difference in society by improving the financial health of our users worldwide.

You’ve also read our company values and engineering principles which drive our ways of working and help us deliver working software to our users, learn what works and iterate quickly to improve it.  You share and embrace these opinions and are passionate about using them to deliver value.

For this frontend focused role, we also have some specific asks:

  • As this is an SE3 position, we’re looking for someone with strong industry experience of using ideally React Native with TypeScript for a minimum of 3 years. If it’s a lot more than that, maybe you want to look at our Senior role.

  • As your work will primarily involve working on features for our mobile apps, we’d either like to see some proven experience in this area or a genuine passion for moving into the mobile app space.

What do you get for all your hard work?

  • A competitive compensation package (base + equity) with bi-annual reviews. You can view our public progression framework and salary bandings here: - This position is a SE3 level and we can pay £63,292 - £79,396 p.a. depending on experience.

  • Work at one of the fastest-growing tech startups, backed by top VC firms, Balderton & EQT Ventures

  • A clear progression plan. We want you to keep growing. That means trying new things, leading others, challenging the status quo and owning your impact. Always with our complete support.

  • Flexibility: We can’t fight for the world’s financial health if we’re not healthy ourselves. We work with everyone to make sure they have the balance they need to do their best work

  • Work where you work best. We’re a globally distributed team. If you live in London we have a hybrid approach, we’d love you to spend one day a week or more in our beautiful office. If you’re outside of London, we’ll encourage you to spend a couple of days with us a few times per year. And we’ll cover your travel costs, naturally.

Company Benefits

  • 25 days annual leave a year + public holidays (+ an additional day for every year you spend at Cleo)

  • 401k matching in the US and 6% employer-matched pension in the UK

  • 2 months paid sabbatical after 4 years at Cleo!

  • Early finish every Friday

  • Online courses & internal training to level up your skills

  • Regular socials and activities, online and in-person

  • Online mental health support via Spill

  • Access to Pushfar - online platform for external mentorship

  • And many more!
